Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Functions f and g are defined on ( 10 , 10) by their respective graphs in 2 4 6 8 2 4 6 8 4 8 4 8 f g Find all values of x where the product, fg , of f and g is continuous, expressing your answer in interval notation. 1. ( 10 , 2) uniondisplay (2 , 10) 2. ( 10 , 10) correct 3. ( 10 , 5) uniondisplay ( 5 , 10) 4. ( 10 , 5] uniondisplay [2 , 10) 5. ( 10 , 5) uniondisplay ( 5 , 2) uniondisplay (2 , 10) Explanation: Since f and g are piecewise linear, they are continuous individually on ( 10 , 10) except at their jumps; i.e. , at x = 5 in the case of f and x = 5 , 2 in the case of g . But the product of continuous functions is again continuous, so fg is certainly continuous on ( 10 , 5) uniondisplay ( 5 , 2) uniondisplay (2 , 10) . The only question is what happens at x = 5 , 2. To do that we have to check if lim x x { f ( x ) g ( x ) } = f ( x ) g ( x ) = lim x x + { f ( x ) g ( x ) } . Now at x = 5, lim x 5 { f ( x ) g ( x ) } = 10 = f ( 5) g ( 5) = lim x 5+ { f ( x ) g ( x ) } , while at x = 2, lim x 2 { f ( x ) g ( x ) } = 0 = f (2) g (2) = lim x 2+ { f ( x ) g ( x ) } . Thus, fg is continuous at x = 5 and at x = 2. Consequently, the product fg is continuous at all x in ( 10 , 10) . 002 10.0 points If the function f is continuous everywhere and f ( x ) = x 2 16 x + 4 when x negationslash = 4, find the value of f ( 4). 1. f ( 4) = 4 2. f ( 4) = 16 3. f ( 4) = 4 4. f ( 4) = 8 5. f ( 4) = 16 6. f ( 4) = 8 correct Explanation: pokharel (yp624) HW04 Radin (56520) 2 Since f is continuous at x = 4, f ( 4) = lim x 4 f ( x ) . But, after factorization, x 2 16 x + 4 = ( x 4)( x + 4) x + 4 = x 4 , whenever x negationslash = 4. Thus f ( x ) = x 4 for all x negationslash = 4. Consequently, f ( 4) = lim x 4 ( x 4) = 8 . 003 10.0 points Below is the graph of a function f . 2 4 6 2 4 6 2 4 2 4 Use this graph to determine all the values of x at which f fails to be continuous on ( 8 , 8). 1. x = 6 , 1 2. x = 6 , 1 , 3 correct 3. f is continuous everywhere 4. x = 6 , 3 5. x = 1 , 3 Explanation: The function f is continuous at a point a in ( 8 , 8) when (i) f ( a ) is defined, (ii) lim x a f ( x ) exists, and (iii) lim x a f ( x ) = f ( a )....
